I had a lot of “likes” on Facebook this past week for the little gouache painting of the eye I did. However, this is what I’m working on for the final piece. So I have to apologize to those who will not see the creepy turn as a positive development. It’s just what I’ve had in mind since the inception of this piece. I am trying to add more editorial pieces to my portfolio, so this seemed like a particularly narrative direction to go while at the same time getting some practice in on painting eyes.
I haven’t settled on the exact arrangement of the flies yet… so I’ll likely fiddle with the composition some more in Photoshop before finalizing.
